Engineers Australia Victoria Division deputy president Guy Hodgkinson and Engineering Heritage Australia co-ordinator Owen Peake enjoy the ceremony at Psyche Bend Pump Station yesterday.

Psyche Bend Pump Station will join the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Snowy Mountain Hydro Scheme on a rare honours list.

The pumps have been recognised by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), which has given the site one of its international markers.

Only five other sites in Australia have received these markers, including the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Snowy Mountains Hydro Scheme.

Not only that, the official unveiling of the marker will coincide with the official reveal of a commemorative plaque from Engineering Heritage Australia.
